I am realllllllly excited about something that I just found out about a few days ago…
I’m going to be running the Boston Marathon on April 18th through a partnership with Amazon on my Instagram! I’m now officially in marathon training mode (first time since 2019!). Luckily, I have hit a 16 & 17 miler in the last few weeks so I have a good base but now I need to get in some solid 20 milers. I absolutely cannot wait to go back for my 3rd time!
6.25 miles @ 8:29 average yesterday with a friend that is also doing the 25k on Friday.
We had bananas that needed to be made into muffins and this recipe received a high rating from Skye.
Beck is getting busier and busier by the day.
Brooke is still studying everything she can about animals on her quest to become a vet… this book is amazing.
Beretta loves a walk while it is snowing.
I got to work on piecing together a marathon training plan for the next 5.5 weeks. My goal is to turn Friday into a 20 miler so that should help!
For dinner, we had tacos with this amazing street corn from Costco. It’s one of our favorites.
I thought it would be fun to create a list of words/phrases that runners hate together… I could only think of ten so I need you to add to them in the comments:
1- Wind (unless it is a tailwind for the entire race/run)
2- Patience (when referring to injuries, bumping up mileage etc)
3- Time off (WHAT?!? HOW WILL I SURVIVE?)
4- You can’t just run… you need to cross-train/strength train (as I get older I am actually loving both but when people told me this in my 20s, it hurt my soul)
5- Running is bad for your _____.
6- Candy isn’t the best thing to eat right when you finish a workout (maybe I’m the only one that has been told this over and over again).
7- The weather forecast isn’t looking good…
8- Hot spots/IT Band/Plantar/Runner’s Knee/Tenoditis/etc
9- You need to take time to stretch.
10- Your favorite running shoe is being discontinued or changed so that it is actually worse than the previous model;)
Now I need to hear from you, what are some things that runners hate to hear?
Who will be either running or cheering at Boston next month?
Would you rather have your plan electronically or on paper?
Any muffin recipes you love? Skye and I are on a mission to try each and every muffin available;)
